THE PRODUCER WRITES CUSTOM PROGRAMS FOR YOU!
Why buy expensive Data Base programs that are only half effective and require the original Data Basesystem disk to run the finished program'' The Producer is a Program Generator that can create the exact programs you want
You don't need any previous programming experience since The Producer writes all the code for you And when the program is finished, it runs without the support of the original Producer system disk
What Kind of Programs Can The Producer Write?

How Does The Producer Work?
The Producer itself is a sophisticated program based on years of research and development But The Producer was written with the end user in mind and the program generation process is quite simple.
You can begin by using a planning form designed to help you organize your program ideas The Producer then asks you a series of simple English questions to enable those ideas to be translated into a program format. You use the computer's arrow keys and graphic characters to draw the data entry screen just the way you want it
Then with the press of a button, the program generator takes over and does all that complex coding for you in a matter of minutes. The result is a complete program, capable of running by itself That means your customized programs may be used independently of The Producer (A feature not possible with Data Base creations.) You may duplicate your Producer generated programs and even sell them for others to use, without paying royalties
